So a Los Angeles County Superior Court ("Judge drops hate crime allegation, Sept. 30) drops charges against a "23-year-old man accused of smashing a religious monument at St. Mary's Armenian Apostolic Church."
As a Christian Armenian it is upsetting to see how someone can just destroy such a valuable monument. Isn't this a bias-motivated crime?
The judge obviously failed to recognize the violent crime allegedly committed by Victor Petrescu.
I know that the monument has significant meaning to many Christian Armenians, including myself. The meaning of the monument is to remember the day Armenians adopted Christianity.
